About Major GossEdit
After Hawkeye gatecrashes the Peace Talks between North Korean and the United Nations at Panmunjom, General Tomlin, the U.S. chief negotiator there sends Major Goss after Hawkeye.
Arriving at the 4077th, Goss finds the camp holding a "Red" party where everyone has dyed their hair and clothing red (Hawkeye had earlier complained that everything about the war seemed to be green). Everyone attempts to intercede for Hawkeye but Goss reassures them that he is not going to arrest Hawkeye. Rather, he has two messages from General Tomlin for him, one official and one unofficial.
Tomlin's official message is that if Hawkeye is ever caught near Panmunjom again, he would be arrested and the key thrown away. Unofficially, the General wishes he were a crazy doctor like Hawkeye so he could get away with what he did. Tomlin also requested a diet for his gastric problems because the peace talks were killing him.
Having delivered the message, Goss prepares to leave but everyone invites him to join in at the party. "Well, I don't know. Do you think I fit in?" he says as he removes his helmet to reveal a full head of red hair!
